Fifteen years ago on Tuesday, the world lost comedy great Phil Hartman at the height of his career. Comedian Jon Lovitz took to Twitter to remember his “big brother” and fellow “Saturday Night Live” alum. “Remembering and never forgetting,” he tweeted.
Last year, Lovitz called Hartman “my favorite actor to work with & the nicest guy ever!”
The best! My favorite actor to work with & the nicest guy ever!

@realjonlovitz Oh man. I'm sorry, Jon. Hartman always makes me pause, watch, laugh, repeat. Not many can do that. He's the top, baby! ♥

@realjonlovitz Phil Hartman was one of the first people that made me really fall in love with comedy. He's a legend.
